Projects for kids

Calling all upcyclers, crafters, artists and DIYers!

Do you enjoy turning old items into something new? Do you want to make a difference in our community? If so, get creative and showcase your imagination, creativity, and talent by entering the Upcycle-It Contest, a fundraiser for Habitat of Humanity of Island County!

To participate, purchase one or more items from the Habitat Store in Freeland or Oak Harbor. Take it home and use your imagination and creativity to turn your item(s) into a better version, or something completely new.  Submit pictures of your new and improved item to Habitat for Humanity of Island County to be entered into online voting for prizes and bragging rights.

On September 24, 2022 join Habitat for Humanity at the FIRST ANNUAL UPCYCLE-IT CONTEST AND AUCTION. Your completed piece(s) will be displayed, and guests will have the opportunity to bid on your creation during the live and silent auctions. There will be an additional prize for the creator of the highest selling item. Proceeds will be used by Habitat for Humanity of Island County to further our vision of a community where everyone has a safe, affordable place to call home.

This is a family-friendly event and kids are encouraged to create smaller works of arts from items purchased at the Habitat Stores. Items contributed by children 17 and younger may be used as raffle items or auction items at the discretion of the UpCycle-It committee. Any itmes not sold or won during the event will be sold after the event at one of our Island County Habitat Stores.
